Insight Guide India is illustrated throughout with hundreds of specially commissioned full-color photographs. The inspirational Best Of India section vividly presents the country's highlights, making sure you don't miss anything - the desert citadel of Jaisalmer, the evocative ruins of Hampi, the bathing ghats of Varanasi and, of course, the Taj Mahal. We also share our recommendations for the best beaches, typical India experiences, national parks and wildlife, and where to escape the crowds. Our History and Culture chapters cover India's past and present in great detail, with engaging and accessible essays that reflect a country transformed by globalization and yet peculiarly timeless. There are special features on conservation, hill stations, and where to pamper yourself in yoga and spa retreats, as well as insights into local cuisine, Indian Tea, and the global phenomenon that is Bollywood. Our Places chapters cover the entire country, from the mighty Himalayas to the bathing ghats of the holy Ganges, the harsh landscapes and bejewelled cities of Rajasthan to the verdant backwaters of Kerala in the deep south - all pervaded by the unique Indian light and color. All major sites are cross-referenced onto detailed maps. The travel tips provide a wealth of practical information on how to plan your trip and what to expect when you arrive, as well as selective hotel, restaurant and nightlife listings.
